Hockey Scholar: The Bank Pass


 

Activity

When you do a bank pass, you need to focus on bouncing the puck at exactly the right spot on the boards. In this experiment, you will use a protractor to measure the incoming, middle, and outgoing angles of a pass.

Round 1

  1. What is the incoming angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 1 Question 1
  2. What is the middle angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 1 Question 2
  3. What is the outgoing angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 1 Question 3

Round 2

  1. What is the incoming angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 2 Question 1
  2. What is the middle angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 2 Question 2
  3. What is the outgoing angle of this pass?  _____degrees

    Round 2 Question 3

Analysis

  1. Take a look at the data you collected. Do you see any patterns?

  2. How does the incoming angle compare to the outgoing angle?

    1. Incoming Angle > Outgoing Angle

    2. Incoming Angle < Outgoing Angle

    3. Incoming Angle = Outgoing Angle

    4. There is no pattern

  3. Add up the three angles for each pass, in the table below, and see if you notice anything.
